When serializing a derived class, the members in its base class are serialized too, correct?
If so, does the base class have to have [Serializable] attribute too?

Yes, the base class must be marked as Serializable as well.

So are you saying if base class is not Serialized, program will not compile or runtime error?

Or  Are you saying --if you only Serialize the derived class, the data declared only within the derived class be serialized?

If you serialize the derived class, you will get an exception stating that the base class needs the attribute as well:
